Rita arrives back from her break to find Norris and Anthony getting on like old friends. Betty tells Hayley that Alma has cancer. Linda calls round to Audrey's house to see if Mike is there. Alma lets her in and they exchange some harsh words. Alma tells Linda how stupid she is for cheating on Mike a second time. During the row Alma collapses and Linda calls an ambulance. Mike, Ken and Curly go the hospital. Alma's kidneys have failed and she is dying. She tells Mike that she wants to die at home. Mike tells the doctor that he's taking her home. Roy and Hayley lure Alex Swinton round to the cafe flat by promising him some money. They get him to confess that he hits Wayne and they try to record the conversation but Alex spots the tape recorder and smashes it. Alex then shocks them both by telling them that they can buy Wayne for £10,000.
